I mean 2016 is when reddit became outright potato-level retarded but imo it peaked in 2008. That was when I felt like I could actually learn shit there.

Ditto. The entire site was pretty usable in 2008. But it also had a few years of good content. For me the near-total ruination was when they hired Ellen Pao and used it as an excuse to censor the fuck out of the site. After that it was downhill, with lots of bumps along the way.
